Elon Musk noted the falling birth rates around the world and said, “We should be much more concerned about the decline of the population.”
Elon Musk, the famous businessman who tweeted some of the tweets on social media , shared with his followers the news about the drop in birth rates.
“U.S. birth rates are down 4 percent in 2020,” Musk wrote in his next tweet, sharing the BBC’s “Fertility rate: Global collapse in birth rates.”
We should be more concerned about population collapse

Elon Musk addressed this issue once again in December last year. Musk said there were not “enough people” in the world and that it could threaten human civilization.
“I think one of the biggest risks to civilization is the low birth rate and the rapidly declining birth rate,” Elon Musk, a father of six, said at a Wall Street Journal event. “A lot of people, including scientists, think there are already too many people in the world and the population is out of control, but the opposite is true, please look at the numbers, if people don’t have more children, civilization will collapse,” Musk added.
